Default Stomp Pad Placement

I realize that stomp pads aren't technically bindings, but this seemed like the closest category.

Here's my question: I've always seen stomp pads stuck somewhere between the bindings, usually right in front of the back binding. Why can't or why shouldn't it be mounted just BEHIND the back binding? I feel like this would give a wider stance, thus more control, thus more comfort.

I think you should totally put teh stomp pad BEHIND the rear binding! You aren't a sheep! You think for yourself and are an individual! Do it!

BTW, if you can afford, you can buy one more stomp pad and put it behind front biding and ride the boards that way! Staying on a stomp pads without bindings. This is how real men with ballz ride their boards.

Stomp pads (leaving aside the discussion whether to use them at all) are typically placed in front of the rear binding for two reasons:
1. It allows you to push against the rear binding with the outside of the boot allowing you to 'lock in' your rear foot somewhat and have more control.
2. Even without 1., your assumption that riding with a wider stance gives more control is incorrect - for most people increasing stand width by 3-4" will make it much harder to turn the board (even strapped in), while going 3-4" narrower does not make as much of a difference.

But as the others have said, it is your damn board so you can (and should) do with it as you please. Hell, you could put a stomp pad right on the nose and try to hang ten if that is what you want to do...

Wait!
Aren't stomp pads used for stomping landings? Hence the name??

WTF??

Unstrap from binding in mid-air and put your back foot on your stomp pad for a secure landing.
No?

Works for me.

In all discussions of stomp pads somebody usually says:

"Who uses stomp pads anymore?"

I haven't bothered on my last couple boards.
